Non-expendable space transportation system 'Space Shuttle' consists of two recoverable solid-rocket boosters, which serve as I stage, and orbital spaceship with three mid-flight oxyhydrogen engines and the external fuel tank, which are II stage. At the same time the external fuel tank the only non-permanent element of the system. It is provided for twentyfold use of solid boosters and hundredfold use of orbital spaceship, and oxyhydrogen engines are provided for 55 flights. During designing it was planned that such STS with launching mass of 1995-2050 t is able to orbit a real weight of 29.5 t with inclination of 28.5 degree and to send back a real weight of 14.5 t to the Earth. It was also planned that the quantity of launching of STS can be brought to 55-60 per year. Launching mass of the first STS was 2022 t, the mass of the pilot orbital spaceship during orbiting was 94.8 t and 89.1 t during landing.
